Peas Pulao

Points to be Noted:
  • I have used dry peas, pre soaked for 10 hours.
  • You can do this with fresh or frozen green peas too.
  • Fresh or frozen peas need not be soaked.
  • You can replace this with green peas too.
  • To prevent rice from sticking dry fry rice (uncooked) and then cook it in pressure cooker with Rice:water Ratio as 1:2.
